Actually, I'm changing my vote to Law of Desire. I might rally support with that one... or not.

(Granted, tomorrow I'll probably change it to the Malle film.)

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Wings of Desire or Karen Carpenter?

maybe Babette's Feats
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Full Metal Jacket.

I need to watch Malle's films and the City of Angels prequel. I bet I'd like them.

8. Ishtar

Did I miss something? I thought Ishtar was like the worst movie ever made and all that jazz?

Considering Babbette's Feats is not a movie, I will put Babbette's Feast up there on the list.
